As part of Indiana University Bloomington’s admission process, students will no longer be required to submit their standardized test scores, according to WTHR.
This policy will become effective in August 2020 for students applying for the 2021 school year. However, the change only applies to IU Bloomington, not the entire campus system.
The elimination of test scores addresses inequity issues since not every student can afford to pay for preparation courses or tutoring. Additionally, GPA has been shown to be a more accurate measure of student’s academic performance, WTHR reported.
